Low Window

Trippy Taxi by Ellas-Sunshine on DeviantArt

saw my likeness in
cave sketches,

and bread crumbs
dropping all
over the
map.

tiptoe along
a fold

paper crinkling-
scrunched up nose,

fingers shielding
cheeks from
night
air

flooding..

driver’s window
cranked
low.

Frozen Pole

A Christmas Story Tongue Stuck to Pole Painting by Brett Hardin

tethered to a frozen
pole on first day
of winter

north wind’s got a dry
sense of humor,
no clemency..

for those lost
in throes,

i’d look up but
tongue’s
stuck,

harder i pull, the
worse tissue
rips and

sharper i shriek
at helper
team,

here to offer aid
though the
snickers

behind shields
of fingers

now scraping under
my last layer,
soon..

i’ll start
seeing stars,

‘less i find my
way out
of

blind boy tunnel
caving under
weight

of its own
snow..

tethered stiff
to frozen
pole.

Strummer

Best Jazz Guitar Albums: 75 Essential Listens | uDiscover

i’ll strum it out
for you,

if mind stays open
to my out of
tune,

deaf moon don’t
mind but if
you do..

i’ll thumb a bit
softer to
ease
the

onslaught on your
pin drop,

not too proud
to please,

flawless to
a fault,

the heart only
your shot
stops..

line after line to
cross your
fears,

each note, for
naught.

Black Light Show

Black Light and UV Paint Body Painting Photoshoot • Bailward Photography

street’s leaning
lanterns
cut

her silhouette into the
only hard lines
on night’s
dull edge,

tripping wires
our failings cast
on motel
wall
in

blacklight lazer
show, then
comes
the

kiss
and go.

On With The Show

Black Swan under Moonlight. Digital Art by Abstract Angel Artist Stephen K

masked man drowns
in sea of claps

echoing..

through the encore
as trap snaps
around

dancer’s ankle
swelling,
angry

and rightfully so
mercifully..

her contract ran
out about an
hour ago,
but

she’s a star so..
on with the
show.
